"...No one ever really does anything about it"

But everyone's talking about it. Brian Lafave, a guy from Wisconsin decides to not to use gas for 31 days, starting May 11th. Instead of logging 300 miles on his pickup truck, he's going to bike. This switch has already quietly happened for many Americans. Byebye exercise bike, hello real bike.

George Bush went begging Saudi Arabia and was rightly rebuffed, but it will be Americans like LaFave will one day turn the supply/demand table. They will not care if gas price goes up to $10/gallon, or if Saudi Arabia falls off the face of earth, they will be glad that they get to spend their gas money anywhere they liked.
